That generalization doesn't really work. Microsoft had Alan Wake from Remedy and at a time had single player games as part of their portfolio with Rare being the biggest provider. Banjo-Kazooie was primarily single payer. Viva Pinata had no multiplayer. Kameo the same. They bought Press Play which could have easily gave them a good single player game and shut them down after one game. All they had to do was make an investment and they failed to turn it into an internal studio worth keepin...

Signed. That's the problem right there. Signed means they only get at best one franchise and the developer is free to move on like Insomniac left Ratchet to do Sunset Overdrive for Microsoft and then did again to do Ratchet and Spiderman for Sony. What's Crytek (Ryse) doing. Hunt:Showdown. That's not Ryse 2. Sometimes you have developers like Insomniac for Sony and Rare for Nintendo that just establish a relationship and pump out exclusives for long period. Microsoft doesn't e...

I find that funny because I chose the girl at the end and we don't know anything about that besides the little bit that was shown so I pretend they went through a traumatic event together and lived happily ever after. If its a true sequel it should go with the selfish ending and have more repercussions for Max's actions on her health.

While I'll agree with the main point, your supporting evidence is very weak. RE5 came out well before Wii U. RE6 was released a month before. So both would have been ports to a low selling console that had too many ports as it was. You conveniently left out RE4 because you knew it was on GameCube first and came to Wii. If you're bring FFX into this, RE4 is fair game for a counter argument. MGS4 also didn't come to Xbox 360 which was available well before release and at the time th...

He went on the Rubin Report, he was on Glenn Beck's show. He wants to write a post apocalyptic novel. I would say he wants to be available to pursue his interests and him staying at Kinda Funny doesn't allow him to do what he wants anymore. The joke for instance affects not just him but the company. Usually it would be fine but now its just one more reason to leave.

Even if Nintendo put better ram in the Switch the other specs would limit AAA third party support on their own. Switch is a portable. That dock does nothing. The RAM they chose is the most energy efficient and it's certainly not VRAM like PlayStation's . Xbox One's RAM is 8GB DDR3 with 68.26 GB/s bandwidth so it's about twice to thrice the bandwidth. If you look at everything, the Switch is a little less than half of the Xbox One's total aggregate performance but it'...

It can. PC run the games however you want them to.

Fair point but this is "Ephebophilia"(teena ger 15 cognitively capable of making their own decisions) not pedophilia (child definitely not). Honestly there is not much difference developmentally between an 18 year old and a 15 year old so the age of consent laws varies by country and have some nuance. Why anyone that old (30) would want anything to do with someone that young(15) is still beyond me. If you're paying for it, don't you want someone who knows what the fuck they&...

The game you should be using is GTAV and Minecraft. Sales don't matter to us consumers though. The fact is Sony gets more third party exclusives because it has a massive install base. If you have 50 million PS4s out there, your game is CAN be profitable even if you don't do an Xbone version.

Why did the console player cross the road?

So the other side of the street would load.

That one kills my master race parties.

Nintendo is their brand name. Everyone drops the entertainment system part when talking about it. It's the Nintendo, the Super Nintendo, the Nintendo 64, and the Nintendo Gamecube to a lesser extent.We only don't use Nintendo on the Wii and Wii U. However the consumer very much knows its a Nintendo product. Whereas with Sony they have made the PlayStation their brand name because they are known for more than games. Sony doesn't present the PlayStation 4 as the Sony PlayStation 4 b...

It's harder to hack and easier to change things with always online. That being said it doesn't really benefit consumers who just want to play single player because the combat could be fun. I went from only being mildly interested for a couple multiplayer matches and single player to not being interested at all. If my data cap runs out, it's bye bye to a game I should being able to play without a connection. To be fair though, this game is being marketed for multiplayer. so those...

Look where you are. N4G the assembly line for sites with clickbait articles. Its the reason you see most as clickbait because you need a bunch of sites with a poor reputation using this site. There's very little curation. However there's a reason the Kotaku review of FFXV has stayed the hottest since it took IGN's spot. It's a really good review. No score. If you simply pay attention you know which reviews line up with your opinion or at least are an honest opinion.

Thats definitely fair. I'm just pointing out it has always been Microsoft's strategy to stand back and watch before trying their own ... anything. Windows phones are there to take a cut out of the established Apple and Android markets. Xbox started as the same thing. Xbox Live is really the only thing they've done in the past 20 years that they beat their competitors to in every way.. Xbox Live was 2002 and Steam was 2003. Now did Steam improve faster and surpass Xbox Live? Yes. I...

So their strategy is the same as it has always been with games. Watch others get the tech up to speed and figure out all the hurdles, then buy a couple companies with experience, and use others work to launch your own. This is exactly what they did with xbox after Sony and Nintendo figured out 3d gaming on consoles for them.

Which only proves they're still on the mountain top. If the next Cod wasn't going to do so well the video wouldn't have gotten views let alone dislikes.

Um Gary Johnson, the other libertarian, Green Party's Jill Stein, that crazy guy who says he's from the future, writing in Mitt Romney. I mean you have choices here. Not good choices but choices.

While there are factually more males than females playing games. I'm not arguing a percentage but there are certainly a lot more than previous generations. The gender role thing that is slowly dissolving away not just in gaming but everywhere. My nieces play with G.I. Joes and watch DBZ. Am I responsible for making the introduction? Yes, but if they didn't like why are they doing when I'm not around?

Assuming that it has to be a male character is stupid on the indu...

The codenames suggest that is what ps4pro was for in the first place. Neo and Morpheus. Sony wasn't exactly hiding its intent.
